20' XLR Mic Cable - XLR male to XLR female
Vocal & instrument mic, full, clear sound with slight bass proximity, for small to mid-size PA systems Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the OM2 is a dynamic vocal microphone used for a wide variety of live and studio applications. The OM2 is known for its clear and accurate sound reproduction, resistance to feedback and ability to handle very high sound pressure levels without distortion.
The OM2 is characterized with a tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage. With a wide frequency range of 50 Hz - 16 kHz, the OM2 employs a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural sound with exceptional transient response.
The OM2 is designed with slight bass proximity and a tailored mid-range, giving it a full bodied sound on small to mid-size PA systems. The OM2 is well balanced, comfortable to hold, durable and manufactured with high standards and tight tolerances.
Roadworthy construction includes a precision die cast zinc alloy body, black e-coat finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, Switchcraft® XLR connector and heavy duty nylon clip.
